Grinding dailies, ilum chest with a low lvl and easy to kill champion on illum, is not skill.
Sorry about your ego.

I already have a job IRL, I don't need a job ingame. I don't do dailies, except when I'm really bored.

Talk about exaggerations!!!!

So you make a million credits in a day while barely trying, you say? Who you trying to impress? As for being a "skilled" player, that's very much in doubt too.


The majority of the few players who have millions upon of millions of credits were here when the game went live and many of them had slicing when it was giving out huge sums. You also have to take into account that these few players spent all day long playing unlike those who work and have rl responsibilies. No player who comes in a few hrs a day can have millions upon millions of credits.

And then while barely trying, like this person above? Who he trying to kid?

Anyway, my two cents, I don't mind credit sinks in theory, but some of them do get under my skin. For example:

Last night I finally decided to purchase a piece of battle master gear for my main character. I went to take the armoring mod out and learned it was going to cost ~35k. I stopped there. Didn't even check the costs for removing the other mods.

Why? I already worked hard to earn the piece from which I want to remove the mod as well as the piece into which I want to slot the mod. Simply acquiring these two pieces of gear was a big time investment for me, so why hit me with another time investment just to, basically, do a skin swap? Getting the funds to move all three mods, plus maybe salvage the one purple mod I currently have in the piece I was wearing, is going to take me at least an hour of running dailies.

I don't know...I realize people on this forum would call me a whiner about this, and tell me that vanity has a cost, but I really don't feel that I'm asking something for nothing here.

You can replace the mods without paying to remove them. Just place your new one on top of it.. gets destroyed for free.

Yes..Yes, they can. I play maybe 4 hours a day and I have 6.5mil. You can do about 2 hours of dailies and make around 500k now.

About the legacy unlocks.

Pay once, get them unlocked on all characters. That's how it works, so what is unfair about this?

If you have 8 alts and not much credits, then there is something seriously wrong with the way you are earning your credits.

Yeah, i agree with OP, although i didn't quite struggle like you did, they have indeed gone too far, and part of the reason i stopped playing

I am NOT spending the bulk of my playing time grinding for money, so i can spend whats left of my playing time, actually playing.

In any MMO there is a need to have a "cash sink" (replace cash with any MMO currency) I do like how BW have a lot of options where you can spend your credits. Granted some of the stuff price is really high, but that is part of the game.

It is good to have a sink. If you want a certain look, it is going to take some time to unlock them. I usually make just enough credits to get by, but now I am more motivated to do dailies to unlock more
